Nokia Lumia 800: What's in the box?
Last week at Nokia World one of the tech worlds worst-kept secrets was finally revealed. Nokia’s very first Windows Phone handset - the Lumia 800. At launch we were told it was shipping straight away and today we finally got our hands on it.
We'll be putting it through its paces over the next few days, but until then, here’s a look at what’s in the box.
Pull out the box and your first impression is dominated by the huge screen, which almost seems to blend into the edges.
The phone is made from a single piece of polycarbonate, instead of aluminium. Nokia claims to have used its years of experience to create a phone that despite plastic and feels premium, but marketing speak aside, plastic should also aid antenna performance. There’s no doubt the Lumia 800 does feel exceptionally solid and very smooth to touch.
Our review unit was black, although Magenta and Cyan versions are available, in the black version in particular, it almost seems to blend into the edges.
At 3.7-inches, the size it's not class leading though and has the customary 480x800 Windows Phone resolution. The use of AMOLED and ClearBlack technology should produce excellent contrast for movies.
Running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, the phone includes a selection of Nokia-exclusive features, such as Nokia Drive, Mix Radio and of course Nokia Maps.
The Nokia Lumia 800 is due to launch around the middle of the month, all the networks will be carrying it: Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile, Three and O2. It will also be available on PAYG for £399 from Nokia.
